The browsing data collected by the Company or by Third Parties through the use of cookies or other trackers are processed by the Company in accordance with the provisions of the Privacy Policy https://portadeileoni.it/eng/privacy-policy.html with regards to browsing data and according to the provisions of the present notice.

What are cookies

Cookies are small text files which the sites visited by the user send and record on the user’s computer or mobile device, which are then retransmitted to back to the same sites at the user’s next visit.

It is thanks to cookies that a site remembers the actions and preferences of the user (such as, for example, log-in data, the preferred language, the font size, other viewing settings, etc.) so that they do not need to be indicated again when the user returns to the site or goes from one of its pages to another. Cookies are thus used to carry out authentication processes, session monitoring and the memorization of information about the browsing preferences of users who access a site. They may also contain a unique identification code that makes it possible to track the user’s browsing on the site for statistical or advertising purposes. Some operations cannot be carried out without the use of cookies (technical), which in certain cases are therefore necessary from a technical point of view for the site to function properly.

While browsing on a site, the user may also receive on their computer or mobile device cookies from websites or web servers other than the one which they are visiting (so-called “third-party” cookies, on the condition that it is not possible to use them to learn the identity of the user). The various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and function, can remain on the user’s computer or mobile device for different periods of time: for example, “session” cookies are automatically deleted when the browser is closed, while “persistent” cookies remain on the user’s device until a preset expiration date.

According to current Italian law, the express consent of the user is not always required for the use of cookies. In particular, consent is not required for so-called “technical cookies”, namely those used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of communications on an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for providing a service explicitly requested by the user. They are, in other words, the cookies that are required for a site to work or necessary to perform activities requested by the user.

Technical cookies, which do not require express consent for their use, include the following:

"analytics cookies" used directly by the website manager to collect information, in aggregate form, about the number of users and how said user visits the site, or by third parties in aggregate and anonymized form,

browsing or session cookies (for authentication),

functional cookies, which allow the user to browse based on a series of criteria selected (for example, the language, etc.) for the purpose of improving the service provided to said user.

These cookies are necessary for the site to function properly and for the user to be able to browse the site; furthermore they make it possible to manage the access (the log-in) to sites, to register the settings preferences where available, and to produce statistical and performance analyses, in aggregate and anonymous form.

For so-called profiling cookies, i.e. those aimed at creating profiles of the user and used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by said user in the context of browsing the web, prior consent from the user is required. Where consent is given, it can be withdrawn at any time on the site and according to the provisions of the present notice or through the dedicated web pages of third parties available at the links contained in the present notice. These cookies are used, for example, to track the position of the insertion and verify whether a user has already seen an advertisement, as well as to follow the user during their browsing in order to define a profile of them and present them with advertising related to their personal interests and to their socio-demographic characteristics.

Cookies used by the Website

The Website uses technical cookies (part of the category of “first party cookies”), anonymized third-party analytics cookies and profiling cookies.

Technical cookies

Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communications network, or of transmitting to the provider information that is strictly necessary in order to provide a service explicitly requested by the user.

Normally, they are installed at the moment of access to the website directly by the controller or manager of the website (if different).

They can be subdivided into:

Browsing or session cookies: these guarantee the normal browsing and use of the website; indeed they are necessary for the site to function properly.

Analytics cookies: these count as technical cookies when they are used directly by the manager of the web site (or by third parties) to collect information in aggregate form about the number of users and how these users visit the site, in order to improve the site’s performance. This category includes the cookies set up by Google Analytics, which collects information about the use of the site by visitors in anonymized form.

Functional cookies: these allow the user to browse based a series of criteria selected (for example, the language, etc.) for the purpose of improving the service provided to said user.
